Welcome to Chimney Point, Pine Cove’s newest all-inclusive family retreat! We have intentional programs and activities for all ages, so you get to enjoy it all, without planning it all. Come to Chimney Point and meet our amazing college staff who love Jesus and cannot wait to invest in your kids!
A week away at Chimney Point gives your family opportunities to grow in your relationship with Christ as you get away from the stresses of daily life. With our awesome activities, incredible speaker sessions, stunning views of Lake Hartwell, and servant-hearted staff, you’ll never want to leave family camp!
Pat “Michelangelo” Preston worked two summers at Pine Cove before joining the full-time staff in 2008. Pat was the Men's Director at the Shores and Outback prior to serving as the Outback Director for five years. After serving as Director of the Ridge camp, Pat transitioned to his current role as Senior Director of Chimney Point. He and his wife, Meghan, have five children.
In order to help strengthen your faith while having the most fun possible, it’s absolutely necessary that our speakers have tons of faith, have a passion for spreading His Word, and be tons of fun! Which is why we are absolutely thrilled with our line up. We can’t wait for you come to camp and get to know them.
The CampLife App makes it easy to keep up with your entire family while at Pine Cove. We’ll be tagging the whole family in photos, and you can invite friends and family back home to follow along with your week of camp! We’ll also put the speaker audio right in the app, so going back and listening to your favorite sessions will be as easy as app‑le pie!
Vacations should be relaxing and fun, and at Chimney Point, you’ll have the perfect opportunity for both! Your family will have time together to dive into enriching Bible studies, laugh together at meals, and experience high-adrenaline thrills at a variety of activities. But there’s also time for Mom and Dad to get away for some adults-only activities like golf and leisurely trail rides while trained Pine Cove counselors make sure your kids are having a blast (or having a nap!). Get excited for the most restful and entertaining week of your summer!
“Who would have thought that out of all the island vacations, ski trips, camping, sports trips, etc – when you ask everyone in my family about their best vacation, without pause they will all say Pine Cove family camp!”
